Significant settlement against City of New York for loss of Sepulcher Rights

Significant settlement against City of New York for loss of Sepulcher Rights

Posted By Dan Flanzig || 28-Oct-2016

Flanzig and Flanzig announces a recently obtained significant recovery against the City of New York for the failure to notify the family of the death of a loved one. By failing to conduct a proper search, the body was wrongfully buried on Hart Island despite the fact that the family, who lived in the tri-state area, would have taken possession and arrange for a proper family burial. As a result of the failure of the City and the Medical Examiner's Office to conduct a proper search and notify the family, the body was sent to Hart Island and placed in a mass grave to be ultimately discovered there by the family months later. The matter was resolved with the City of New York prior to trial.
